    Organic Homemade Phosphorus Fertilizer

  1. 1

    Clean and dry the garbage can. Any contaminates or moisture will degrade the quality and shelf life of the mixture.

  2. 2

    Put on a dusk mask and pour the ingredients into the garbage can.

  3. 3

    Mix the ingredients together thoroughly. The best method is using gloved hands for initial mixing and then shaking and tossing the garbage can until the mixture is even.

  4. 4

    Seal the garbage can with the snap-on lid.

  5. 5

    Store in a cool, dry place until the fertiliser is needed.

Tips and warnings

  • This recipe can be scaled by replacing the "pounds" with "parts." Securely fasten the garbage can lid to prevent moisture from ruing the stored fertiliser.
